Prevent Diabetic Retinopathy

Do you know that Diabetes could put you at risk for eye diseases?

IMgIf high blood sugar levels are not controlled for a long period of time, in the event of diabetes, it leads to damage of various organs in the body, including retinal damage in the eye.

Diabetic Retinopathy (DRP) occurs with the damage caused to the tiny blood vessels that nourish the retina, causing swelling of retinal tissue and clouding of vision. The longer a person has diabetes, the more likely they will develop DRP. If this condition is not addressed in time, it will lead to vision loss, to both the eyes.

Doctor’s Recommendation:


Get an eye-check up once a year, without fail. even if your vision seems fine


Maintain blood sugar and blood pressure levels near normal


Consult an eye doctor immediately if a change in your vision occurs


Pregnancy can worsen DRP, so additional check-ups may be advised by your doctor.

DRP Symptoms:


Spots or dark strings floating in your vision (floaters)

So, manage your sugar levels, follow a healthy lifestyle with appropriate diet and exercises to prevent DRP.
